A musical with a hysterical book co-written by Mel Brooks and Thomas Meehan and music and lyrics by Mr. Brooks: A scheming producer and his mousy accountant aim to produce the biggest flop on Broadway in this laugh-out-loud spectacle. The Producers skewers Broadway traditions and takes no prisoners as it proudly proclaims itself an “equal opportunity offender”! A truly “boffo” hit, winning a record twelve Tony Awards, The Producers sets the standard for modern, outrageous, in-your-face humor.

Casting 5 men and 1 woman. Ensemble of 8 men and 8 women.

Auditioners, you should prepare a 32  bar musical theater piece that shows your range.  Bring your own sheet music an accompanist will be provided.

Max Bialystock: described as selfish and greedy – a man who is only interested in making money. Though this is later proven untrue, Max’s fiery and sarcastic nature can be very intimidating. He is willing to do anything to make money (including “shtupping every little old lady in New York”) and is often angry, short-tempered and unwilling to cooperate nicely. Plays nice when he needs to. Comedy a must; tenor. F#4-A2

Leo Bloom: a mousey, nervous and fearful accountant, prone to panic attacks and who keeps a security blanket to calm himself. Nevertheless it is Leo who has the idea of how to make money from a failed play. Great physical comedy a must; tenor. F4-A2

Ulla: Ulla Inga Hansen Benson Yonsen Tallen-Hallen Svaden, a stereotypical Swedish woman: tall and beautiful. Great singer (belt) and dancer. Comedic with timing and delivery. G5-A3

Franz Leibkind: a former Nazi who has penned an admiring musical tribute to Adolf Hitler, titled Springtime for Hitler. He is a slightly off kilter and can go from happy to angry rather quickly. Comedy skills needed, baritone. G4-F2

Roger de Bris: a gay theatre director, described by Max Bialystock as the worst director to have ever lived. He lives with his equally flamboyant partner Carmen Ghia and his production crew in a house described as an Upper East Side town house in New York. Man in a dress. Comedy skills needed; baritone. G4-G#2

Carmen Ghia: Roger De Bris “common-law assistant”. They are both gay and they love to flounce around their Upper East Side town house. Hugely comedic; tenor. A4-C3
